On the Genealogy of Morals and Ecce Homo Author:Friedrich Nietzsche Translated by Walter Kaufmann and R.J. Hollingdale. — From the back of the book: "ON THE GENEALOGY OF MORALS (1887) is Nietzsche's major work on ethics. It shows him using philosophy, psychology, and classical philology in an effort to give new directions to an ancient discipline. The work consists of three essays. The first contrasts master mora... more »lity and slave morality and indicates how the term 'good' has widely different meanings in each. The second inquiry deals with guilt and the bad conscience; the third, with ascetic ideals-not only in religion but also in the academy.
ECCE HOMO, written in 1888 and first published posthumously in 1908, is Nietzsches' review of his life and works. It contains separate chapters on all the books he himself published. His interpretations are as fascinating as they are invaluable. Nothing Nietzsche wrote is more stunning stylistically or as a human document."« less
